Charleston South Carolina

I still vividly remember the first time I ever went to Charleston South Carolina. It was the middle of winter in Michigan, and I was hanging out with a friend of mine. We both had a break from school, and we were trying to figure out what to do. When I found out that my friend had never seen the ocean, it struck me as a revelation. I wanted him to see it. That very day, we decided to drive. The question was whether to go to the East Coast, or to drive south. The way the land slopes in the United States, both drives were about the same distance. We decided to go to Charleston SC because it was going to be quite a bit warmer down there. After all, who wants to go to the ocean just to stand in the cold wind and shiver?

 

Once we got down to Charleston South Carolina, we were overjoyed. It was absolutely gorgeous. There were beach houses everywhere. Basically, it combines the laid-back attitude of a beach front town with the classic style of a southern city. The Charleston downtown was a lot of fun. Even though it was the off-season, there was still music to be heard. We were not there for the music, or even for the delicious ribs, however. We were there to hang out on the beach.

 

I have been to nicer beaches, and I have definitely been on beaches during nicer weather, but I have never been quite so overjoyed to be able to pass the afternoon just sitting out on the sand and watching the ocean. It was absolutely glorious. For most of the day, it was warm enough to go in a short sleeved shirt and shorts. Even when it got cooler, it was still a lot nicer than Michigan. The ocean was mellow and soothing. All in all, it was everything I had hoped for from that trip.

It was my memories of that Charleston South Carolina vacation that first convince me to buy real estate there. It was a few years ago, and Charleston real estate was still relatively cheap. I bought a beach house reasonably near to downtown after only looking at a few different places. I knew right away that it was the perfect one for me. Now I can go down and enjoy Charleston South Carolina anytime I want. There is always a house waiting for me.
